Number 6: First evidence for higher state of consciousness found.

In mid-April (2017), neuroscientists from the College’s Department of Medicine and partner universities revealed they had observed a sustained increase in the diversity of brain signals of people under the influence of psychedelic drugs, compared with when they were in a normal ‘awake and aware’ state. Explaining the potential of this finding, Imperial’s Dr Robin Carhart-Harris said: “People often say they experience insight under these drugs – and when this occurs in a therapeutic context, it can predict positive outcomes. The present findings may help us understand how this can happen.”​
